I didn’t really know what to expect when I got to the gym for my first class. I thought maybe the gym would be like any other fitness place I would be going to, but when I walked in I was surprised by a whole different experience. I found that the instructors were all women, and I had no idea what to expect. I was so wrong. The ladies of the gym were friendly, engaging, and I appreciated that. They knew how to teach a class.
I was only there for a total of two hours, but I learned that the gym was open to the public, and when you went to the gym and asked for a trainer, you got exactly one person who was female. There were only a handful of other female trainers in the place, and even they were all friendly. They knew how to treat a customer.
I’ve made it a point to try not to judge the trainers, but I have to admit that I thought the gym was a bit prissy. It was. I’ve never been a huge fan of gym clothes, but the gym at my local mall had some pretty nice gym shirts.
You’ll often find those in malls. I find myself wondering why it is that this is so. While there are some good ones, I think most of the ones I see tend to be cliched and sexist. You know, that “this is a place for women to exercise, so wear that” crap.
I think this is the reason that “fitness” isn’t really a thing yet. I think we’ll start seeing a lot of “fitness” in the next few years. That is, if they don’t already have a name for it. To some extent, I think it’s a good thing since it makes it more difficult for people to associate “fitness” with “hating gym clothes”.
I’m not sure that I agree with their gender ratio here. While I think women are a lot more likely to be big people, this still seems like a place for them. But it’s also a place for a lot of men too. A lot of our gym space is empty so I doubt it will be big enough for a bunch of guys to hang out. Maybe the only men there are the ones who are in there because they know that they need to be there.
I guess this is a place that would appeal to a lot of guys who want to feel like they have some control over their bodies, but I don’t think it’s a good idea. I’d rather hang out at a place where there would be more of a focus on the people who actually do the gym training.
A lot of men would rather be around other men than be their own. I can’t really blame them though, I’m a man. I have a lot of control over my body and how I train it. I’m not going to be a couch potato, but I also don’t want to be someone who is just going to sit around and watch TV.
Well, I’ve got news for you. As a man, you don’t have any control over your body at all. You’re stuck with the results of genes and your past experiences to determine your shape. You might be fat, but you’re not a man.
I get the feeling the people who say this are the ones who are never going to become men, but thats life. I think it’s amazing how many men have the attitude of saying “I just want to be a man,” especially if youre a guy. But you can be a guy and still be a man. You can have the masculine body, confidence, and a strong mind. That doesnt mean you have to be a supermodel, or even a big strong man.
